It's Still Winter

Snow, Snow, Snow. Here is our house. Can you see the stained glass stars hanging on Shepherd's hooks? My husband made them for Christmas and they light up at night.

The forecast tonight is more snow. Fun, fun, fun. There will be more shoveling again tomorrow. At least it is good exercise and maybe we won't be in a drought this year.

OK, I still haven't gotten the hang of this. This is our front door and winter decor. Most the decorations are from Marissa's wedding reception. The icicles I bought for her receptions but she said no and I couldn't take them back. I like them anyway.
Here is one of the stars close up. My husband made up the patterns and idea. Isn't he talented? Here is another star. There are also different colors but I seem to have managed to only take pictures of the red ones. Thanks to everyone who posted. I was surprised to have comments from the world at large. I thought I'd only hear from my children. I have some posts I want to do on organization so stick with me. (Ironic isn't it that is post is not organized at all? I'll have to consult with my blogspot expert, Stephanie.)

The World of Blogging

Thanks to my daughter, Stephanie, I'm starting my own blog. I don't know how great it will be especially when compared to all of yours, but I thought I'd give it a try. It might take me awhile to get the hang of things so be patient children. Candice I'm hoping you'll help create a great french country style heading.

It was all I could do to think of a title for my blog. I thought of "Small and Simple Things," (You know...from small and simple things are great things brought to pass.), "All Things Unique," (Because I only like unique things...). I thought of calling it "Heartland Manor" because that was the name of my retail store. I settled on "Charmed I'm Sure." Why? Hmmm, it is unique, remember I like unique, and it will look great as a header, and I like how it sounds. So babies, your mom will try to keep you updated on all the exciting things in my life. I will share my advice, ideas, woes, loves, and dreams. I'm just not sure how often I'll be able to post but I'll try. I'm spreading my wings thanks to your examples. Love you!

P.S. First one to respond to my first post gets a Valentine's package in the mail.
